Your feet are the things
Walking closest to Earth
So it's time your pedicure
Has an eco-rebirth!

Green Feet

For many ladies (and even some men), summer is the time to pamper your tootsies so they look their best in sandals and flip flops. But how best can you soothe your barking dogs and protect the environment from potentially toxic chemicals found in common cleansers, creams and polishes?

  • Green Body Care features healing organic foot care products including exfoliates, foot crème and foot butter made from all-natural ingredients such as Dead Sea salt, baking soda, ginger, coconut oil, grapefruit seed extract, lemon and lime.
  • For smoothing out your heels, pick up an inexpensive organic pumice stone, like those found at Organically Happy.
  • Ready to apply a coat? While choosing your favorite shade, try to avoid nail polish that contains toxins such as dibutyl phthalate, toluene and formaldehyde. Zoya nail polish is free from these ingredients, providing a significantly more natural option for making "this little piggy" stand out.
  • When you're ready for a change, be sure to use a natural nail polish remover, such as Tate's The Natural Miracle Nail Polish Remover. Tate's is organic and odorless, containing no dyes, gluten, colors, or pesticides and has not been tested on animals - a definite plus!
